We had a nice experience. The food was very good but the waitress was overwhelmed at lunch. She had to cover many tables and the place was crowded.

The food was very good a specially the cream of crab soup. Our waiter tried to keep up but was having trouble, while other staff members just sat around talking

went to Buddy's yesterday and had the buffett.Left wishing we had gone somewhere else..The food at the buffett was average at best. The fried fish was overcooked and the baked fish was dried out. The steamed clams and mussells also left much to be desired, On the cold bar the shrimp was rubbery and the crab claws were basically mush. On the good side the dessert were ok.. we will not be going back,,

This is a dynamic place that attracts Midshipmen with voracious appetites for good food.
The ribs fall of the bone and the crab is delicious.
The cream of crab soup is delicious.

I have gone to Buddy's a number of times over the last 20 years. The food has traditional been pretty good. Not excellent, but seafood options were usually fresh and good. We recently had dinner there and I could not believe how horrible the food was. The cream of crab looked good with chunks of crab meat. However, what appeared to be crab meat was lumps of flour! It was gooey and the little crab meat in it was not very good. The vegetable crab soup was even worse. They claim to have been voted the best crab soups from the Maryland Seafood Festival. I have tried their soup at the festival and it is in fact very good. However, that is not the soup that is served in the restaurant. The crab cakes were HORRIBLE. In Maryland they should be outlawed. I realize it is off season, but if the crab meat is that bad, it should be thrown away. The absolute worst dish was the salmon. Obviously a frozen filet that was positively nasty. Keep it up Buddys you will surely go out of business.
